At the Station

Platform gap between train DC Metro

The gap between the station platform and metro rail cars means my power wheelchair gets stuck especially during rush hour when passengers move to the far side of the metro rail car and raise the height of the car above the platform. Usually it takes four fellow passengers pulling and pushing together to get me and my wheelchair on board the car. If a metro attendant had a portable metal ramp that could be placed on the platform and inside the car, wheelchair users could roll right in!
